    According to Radicati Group, a technology research center, the online world will boast 5 billion email accounts by 2017.

  • Why personalization is more than just: Dear (First Name) - and how your CMS can help

    Web Content Management
    21 Jul 2015 | 8:33 am
    Your customers are demanding a better experience with your brand. They want to feel like you really care about their individual wants and needs - and if you don’t, they’re quick to turn to a competitor. However, personalizing your content and messaging needs to go beyond simply adding a “Dear (first name),” to your emails. To really personalize your messaging, you need to know who your customer is, what they want, and what they need. This means getting to know their story, even beyond how it directly applies to your brand. Creating personas will help you really get to…

    And they thought cable was dead…well it is…kind of…at least as a bundled content package… …but everything is now migrating OTT… …and content is king…giving those little guys a huge opportunity. Think about all of the little cable channels you never heard of. Niche networks serving niche audiences with specific programming that never got the time of day.

    Early adopter...early predictor...

    13 Jul 2015 | 10:53 am
    The traditional television networks had to be all things to all people. In order to distribute their content, they needed deep infrastructure along with multiple broadcast, cable and FCC licensing agreements. Today everyone is a broadcaster and the costs are minimal. Brands used to have to buy their way into a network’s broader audience – now they can target their exact audience directly, while owning the content. It’s a big shift in thinking as marketers go from paid to earned and learn how rich the rewards are for bringing something valuable to an audience that will become…

    Even though government revenues haven’t recovered to pre-recession levels, the immediate public sector revenue crisis seems to have stabilized. As we adjust to historically high staff reductions, it is a great time to push forward with business process improvement and move to technology tools that can help you continue to survive being understaffed – and even find new efficiencies. Accounts payable and accounting departments have been hit hard, but were always challenged by paper-intensive processes, older accounting or ERP solutions, filing and slow archiving regimens and more.

    As Hyland has grown into a sizable company (now at 1,900 employees and more than $300 million in annual revenue) our investments in enterprise applications for our internal operations have become more sizable too.

    Over the years, we have talked with countless clients about “making the business case” for their records management programs. Each records management program is different, but the business cases themselves tend to follow a similar script. They usually go something like this… Whenever possible, they start with hard-dollar costs savings. Showing a direct impact on the bottom line is the easiest way to obtain approval for the program. After that, business cases move on to the benefits that are less quantifiable, but still easily traced to the bottom line, namely: operational…

In fact, many costs associated with maintaining and using electronic files are driven in large part by one or both of those metrics.

  • Using Brand Data to develop the right content.

    Jared Hendler
    13 Jul 2015 | 10:53 am
    The traditional television networks had to be all things to all people. In order to distribute their content, they needed deep infrastructure along with multiple broadcast, cable and FCC licensing agreements. Today everyone is a broadcaster and the costs are minimal. Brands used to have to buy their way into a network’s broader audience – now they can target their exact audience directly, while owning the content. It’s a big shift in thinking as marketers go from paid to earned and learn how rich the rewards are for bringing something valuable to an audience that will become…
  • Apple Music is a complete disaster.

    Jared Hendler
    6 Jul 2015 | 10:20 pm
    I just wrote about how Apple may be blocking Spotify from working seamlessly with their hardware. I was worried that these type of tactics from Apple may give AppleMusic the upper hand. In some ways I wanted Apple’s new service to give me a great reason to switch as all of my owned tracks still sat in iTunes and the idea of having everything integrated into one place made a lot of sense. Unfortunately, aside from the deeper hardware integration, AppleMusic was a total disaster and here’s why. Sound quality. Maybe my ears need tuning but Apple’s service is all treble and no bass.

For a first version I was amazed at how good Beats was. Back then Spotify was still a bit clunky and basic functions like searching your saved playlists by artist were missing from the app. But I stuck with them, for 3 main reasons. First, my playlists were all organized and saved – the main barrier to exit for most people. Second, I loved the social interaction (Facebook integration) and song sharing between friends as a personal…

    Jared Hendler
    17 Feb 2015 | 11:12 am
    Let me get a bit esoteric for a minute. We hunger for things that have the promise to transform us. Our search for meaning has always led us to want to understand the origin of life itself. We use science and technology to play creator in order to get us closer to the answer. Advancements in computing, artificial intelligence and robotics are all a part of that search but nothing brings us closer to being a creator of our own reality than Virtual Reality. After many false starts, the VR industry is finally taking hold as the largest companies like Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Samsung,…
